    I have had a few that burned out faster than an incandescent.

    Wrong!
    Have had 3-4 go out in the past 2 years.
    It would take a dozen hazmat people to clean it up if it were to break.
    Should be taken to a recycling center.
    But our local center doesn’t have a place for them, said to just put them in the trash to go into the landfill.

    Better living through bureaucracy.

    I have yet to have one last more than 14 months, their cost was more than the electricity that I saved.

    But they’re always guaranteed for at least five years… and everyone keeps their receipts…

    I have a bag with at least six burnt-out ones waiting for me to take to the recycle center. Poor quality light in the rooms from them as well.

    The problem is that they are not supposed to be covered. They are just a phase. LED lights are much better.

    But it takes four guys in hazmat gear to pick a broken one up.

    They do last long, but their death is spectacular – and stinky.

    Home Depot takes them and sells LED’s reasonably. Although, I do miss my incandescents.

    Home Depot in my town does not take them. My local municipal transfer station took it and “put it in the back” for the state to take care of .

    I used to buy around 10 bulbs a month. Then I switched. Over the past 8 years, I’ve replaced 3 bulbs.

    I’ll be replacing all my CFLs with LEDs as they burn out – which won’t be long.

    Why do we accept that the government knows what is best for us……..Toilets, Light Bulbs, auto safety?

    Not only have most of mine burned out, I have had three catch on fire. I have incandescents in my barn that are over twenty years old. Freedom of choice for bulbs should not have been destroyed by government nitwits.
